I totally trusted the Tourance that I rode in all conditions for many years, the K60 is better in the dirt and gravel but my trust does not yet extend to damp or wet pavement at speed and fully loaded.

Looks like I am going to miss you in Mexico. Not back there until mid-Feb but I will want to pick your brain about a few things.

I am in Chile and will be posting to my RR. In a great beach town now. Guanaqueros. http://www.findmespot.com/mylocation...612S/71.42474W
Yeah on my second K60 and have ridden in some streaming wet conditions - not this trip but in the US - and in 20,000 miles haven't had a single issue with them. Of course I treat them pretty gently in the wet, and ABS and traction control on the S10 certainly eases any worries about locking wheels or spinning up the rear unexpectedly... I do notice the TCS light flickering a lot when pushing it tho!

Didn't hear about Radioman's problem, in his ride report I guess?

Mid-feb I'll probably be in Guatamala. I'm due on the Stahlratte March 28.
